Nanofiltration 2020 will take place from Tuesday 29 June until Friday 2 July. The preliminary programme is shown below. The meeting place is the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology Campus North, which is located about 1.5 hours by train south of Frankfurt. For those arriving on the 7th this is a convenient meeting place. We offer a casual lab visit of the Institute for Advanced Membrane Technology, a lunch at Germany’s largest research centre and will then travel by bus to the Achalm.
In the afternoon the three days programme starts. There will be 11 sessions and tentative topics are listed below. All meals will be provided, please note that room bookings are separate to registration and as room availability is limited please register early.
